Here's a Bigfoot ...
I just made this:
It's a Fnord pyramid.
What we really need, after seeing that, is a brain-bleach smiley.
And no patridge in a pear tree
That's a bloke in a gorilla suit :epop2:
Of course we need an epic sax guy meme.
I saved what I could, just look what they did to my little archive crypt forum last night...
It's "better for mobile" now, I'm so glad.
(Freeforums got eaten by something called Tapatalk.)
If this carries on much further we can dispense with English as the first language of the FTMB.
Tapatalk is a front-end app that allows mobile device users to effectively interface with forums operating atop software platforms designed for more powerful user platforms (e.g., PC's) such as this one (which uses XenForo).
According to this April FreeForums announcement:
... they've been in the process of migrating from their original forum software base to something new and unspecified.
This migration has had some problems, to judge by the FreeForums announcements.
I'm not aware that Tapatalk offers an all-in-one forum platform of their own.
So, is there any chance that this is just a "transitional" thing?
Freeforums still seems to be offering all manner of pretty forums, surely they wouldn't if it was no longer possible?
Even an archive gets some traffic, I would like if it looked the way people remember it.
I have no idea ... According to their own website FreeForums originally used their own forum software, which I take to mean was self-developed. There's an announcement vaguely stating the original software platform needed to be replaced, and the last year's announcements seem to indicate they've been having problems installing whatever it is they're using to replace the original (home-grown?) forum software. I have no idea what the replacement platform may be, but my cursory look-see didn't turn up any mention of any currently-available commercial package (VBulletin; XenForo; etc.).
Because I only know TapaTalk as a vendor supporting interfacing (rather than forum functionality per se) I have no reason to believe this latest version of the FreeForums platform came from TapaTalk.
My best suggestion is to dig into the user discussions (announcements, whatever ...) at FreeForums and see if you can learn more details about what's really going on ...
I wholeheartedly (or however it's spelt) approve of this. The new Smileys.
Somebody used to have a wank smiley on the forum , that was good
... just because I like it ..
Oh god yes! :rofl2:
(And thanks for finding the embarrassed smiley for me. )
Just what we need sax and violins
Eeeh, I can remember when t'dancin' banana were all t'go.
Here's a better version of the Fnord pyramid (bigger writing):
Group hug smiley:
Sorry, I had to resize it and lost the animation...
Shall I stop now?
Find the toilet wanker!! That was a good un
Those were OneWingedBird's own smileys.
Just in time for ... http://worldemojiday.com/
Worth a read. it made me smile anyway.
This one might be too big, apologies.
